Education – Senate hearing scheduled on ESSA implementation 

On February 23, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee will hold a hearing on the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  This law, which was enacted at the end of 2015, reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act which governs general education in our nation’s public schools.  ESSA devolves much authority back to the states.  Disability advocates are urged to actively participate in its implementation in their states as most students with disabilities spend the majority of their instructional time in the general education settings.  Visit the Committee web site to learn more and to watch a live webcast the day of the hearing.
